A month ago a coworker told me about the diet of the apple and I wanted it to see if it worked. two weeks ago I started with the apple diet for three days. the truth, I thought that wasn't going to work but it turned out that I lost 9.5 pounds. I know this is not the best way to lose weight, but it is the quickest way to lose a few pounds. today I start my second round with this diet. I hope to lose more pounds. any of you have tried this diet?do you think i can do it for more than three days?
good luck with your goals!!

You only eat apples for 3 days? How many can you have? Is that all you can have?

I love apples, but if that is all you can eat for 3 days - I am not sure I love them that much!

Hello~~

I'm new here but this caught my eye. Here's a link to a little more info on it. As with anything, research it. I think what this does is cleanse your body of toxins..a friend did it. I'd be interested in others thoughts on it. http://www.3-day-diets-central.com/apple-diet.html

Anything that drops that much weight in 3 days or a week is not healthy and most likely the weight could come back.

I just googled it and found this:

"The foundation of the 3-Apple-a-Day Plan involves eating an apple before each main meal. The idea is that the fiber in apples makes you feel full and the sweetness satisfies cravings.
In addition to eating apples dieters follow a food plan that is very similar to the South Beach Diet with a relatively low intake of carbohydrates and reduction of saturated fats. Refined sugars are to be eliminated while low glycemic index carbohydrates are emphasized."

That sounds much better than eating apples only for 3 days lol.

I think that after you stop the diet, you will gain all the weight back. I am working on a weight loss plan that will keep the weight off for the long term - not a quick fix. I am trying to lose fat and learn to eat healthy. I don't really know anything about this "apple diet", but becareful that you are not hurting your body. I am looking at this as a lifestyle change they will teach me to make life long healthy choices that will result in a healthy weight, more energy and a general feeling of well being.

Short term payoff but no longer term results. Very unhealthy. I like MFP because it encourages you to lose weight in a healthy way. Why be skinny if your not healthy? That being said, its your decsion and good luck :)

America didn't get so overweight by eating fruits, no matter HOW (naturally) sugary they are...



What else does this "diet" entail? Is it really eating nothing but apples for three days? What about all of the other nutrients your body needs?

Wow...

I know we as Americans are OBSESSED with doing things fast and the "easy" way. Nothing says commitment & determination like hard work and discipline. OP I have no idea who you are or what you stand for, but I truly hope that you take a second look & not the short term of "I'm losing weight fast" but the long term of "what will I lose and/or gain by making this decision". Not to be preachy, but its 2011, its time to take it back to the basics, I refuse to continue to embrace and ignore the very acts that put us in the holes we are constantly digging ourselves out of.

Gurley - that doesn't actually look bad to me at a quick glance - I see veggies, fruits, lean protein sources, low fat dairy sources, good carbs.

Sometimes having a more restricted "diet" is a great way to kick-start a healthier eating lifestyle, and cleanse out some of the "crap" I eat, lol!

Might have to give this a try!
